EDSIMIL
Enumeration district match ID

Description

EDSIMIL is a random number assigned to all households and group quarters within a particular enumeration district. The numbers allow users to locate all sample households from the same district, although the precise location of the enumeration district is not specified. The specific geographic locations corresponding to the codes cannot be identified until the confidentially requirements are met (72 years from the date of enumeration, assuming the key to the codes still exists).

Codes

This variable is only available in the 1940 1% and 1950 samples. EDSIMIL is a 6-digit numeric variable that is randomly assigned to all households and group quarters within a particular enumeration district. The numbers allow users to locate all sample households from the same district, although the precise location of the enumeration district is not specified. The specific geographic locations corresponding to the codes cannot be identified until the confidentially requirements are met (72 years from the date of enumeration, assuming the key to the codes still exists). EDSIMIL specific variable codes for missing, edited, or unidentified observations, observations not applicable (N/A), observations not in universe (NIU), top and bottom value coding, etc. are provided below by Census year (and data sample if specified).

Comparability

This variable means the same thing for both 1940 and 1950, though the districts are numbered differently in each year. The enumeration district numbers given for 1880, 1900, and 1920 in the IPUMS variable ENUMDIST can be used for grouping records in the same way as the numbers in EDSIMIL.

Universe
